The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer says he doesn't expect to return for a third run on The X Factor sister series.

Olly Murs has admitted a return to co-host the 2013 series of The Xtra Factor is "unlikely" because he wants to focus solely on launching his career in America.

The 'Troublemaker' singer has been making waves in the US over the past few weeks, and has now hinted that he is set to leave The X Factor UK's sister series after two years co-hosting alongside with Caroline Flack.

"I've had two great years on it," Olly revealed to Heat this week. "To be honest, the way my career is going in terms of music and international t looks unlikely that I'll be able to do it.

"It's an amazing part of my career and working with Caroline has been great."

Olly has co-hosted The Xtra Factor ever since joining the show with Caroline in summer 2011, and the two have been widely praised for their on-screen chemistry together.

Earlier this month it was announced Olly will perform two songs on an upcoming episode of US teen drama 90210, as well as having a small acting cameo on the CW show.

Olly Murs is also preparing to release 'Army Of Two' as the second official single from his recent album 'Right Place Right Time'.
